His replacement Andrea Petagna bagged a brace and an assist.

“Osimhen didn’t train yesterday as he went to France to renew his visa, which may have effected him slightly,” Gattuso said after the game.

“Petagna did very well in attack. We must not only look at the goals, but at the overall performance of the team, and we certainly didn’t do very well today.”

Napoli will face Portuguese Primeira Liga club Sporting Lisbon in their final pre-season game on September 14.
